    DSQ from Tyre Change Master Thread

    A temporary fix that works at least for 25% races: At race start open the strategy window... then pick one of the default strategies and change it so that you do the pitstop one lap earlier or later (shouldn't make much difference in the total race time maybe like 0.3s or whatever)... so that it becomes a customized strategy. Close the window. Start race... Race normally and do the pitstop... then race to the end. You won't get DSQ'd. Used the workaround to successfully advance all the way into the 3rd 22 race season.

    DSQ from Tyre Change Master Thread

    Seems like the patch is out. I will check later in the evening if it works or not.
  3. Well in France the race wasn't in rain, but the qualifying was. But now Austria again rain. 🤦‍♂️ I think the odds for rain are like 50% in this season. 11 races. 6 in rain. If the chance for rain is rolled pre-season or something then that might explain why there is so much rain. If it is decided from race to race it definitely is weird.
  4. 1. A detailed description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. Well I don't know, maybe the RNG Gods just hate me but in my second season in My Team I have already the 5th race in rain out of 9 races. Australia, Vietnam, Monaco (which was the most ridiculous one with full wets and even changing to inters mid session where all of a sudden midfielders stood on the podium with me because they didn't change tires like the topfielders and there not being any possibillity to overtake), Azerbaidschan and now Canada. And in the other races except for Bahrain (where rain probably is disabled from ever happening) I at least also had rain in at least one of the practice/qualifying sessions. I mean it is funny and something different for once but the trend is starting to get alarming and ridiculous. Like as if the game wants me to crash into a wall or something to finally end the rain streak. And there definitely is no setting for manipulating the weather in a My Team career so I definitely couldn't have forced rain every time. I have never had such a streak throughout all previous game installments. Not even in my first season of F1 2020. There I just had 2 races in rain in a total of 22 races. 2. Platform PC 3. What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 1.03 4. Game-mode? My Team 5. What are your replication numbers? Minimum test attempts are 4. Please also add EXACT replication steps for us to try too. Moving fordward in the calendar I will look if it happens again... or if it is just a one in a million streak. 6. What troubleshooting have you attempted? Please always try to attempt to fix the issue Accepting the weather and going to next race. 7. What peripherals are you are using (gamepad, wheel make & model etc) PS4 controller 8. Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears. Here one from the canada weekend (sadly I don't have any from the other weekends but back then I didn't believe the streak would continue):

    Assist Nerf!

    Yeah well. I think the best approach would still be splitting the leaderboards into two categories... for those who don't use any assists and those who use assists. Then no nerfs would be necessary and those who play without compete only with other people who play without.
  6. Well I used to play with ABS off in earlier installments but I get older, I don't have as much time anymore as I used to and hence I slowly fade into the casual player league. Hence why I have left turned the assists on for 2020 because it is no fun if the few hours I get to play I then lock up on every 5th turn because I have not that much practice anymore. Also 2020 feels kinda a bit different than 2018 felt when it comes to car balance/handling but I can't exactly say what it is. But that is also why I know that ingame driving with Brake assist+ABS on is at least somewhat slower and at best equal as fast as if you'd play without those assists. The game then just wants to play it safe so you are almost guaranteed to make the turn and hence breaks/shifts earlier than you could without. Especially with Brake Assist to maximum it feels like you are on a rail much like the AI and like you are only rewarded if you drive exactly as specified on the dynamic racing line which isn't always the fastest racing line and is useless if you are in overtake maneuvers.
  7. Ah yes, forgot to mention that it already is with the devs due to another thread reporting the issue already. But now BarryBL already said it too that it is with the devs.
  8. The issue is the marketing department. If you upgraded the part for the +10% driver acclaim then the issue starts. After that all acclaim you earn gets subtracted instead of added. The Developers are already aware of the issue. But don't know when they are going to fix it. In the meantime the only way to work around the issue is shutting down the marketing department.
  9. Zandvoort kinda feels like a rollercoaster with all those banked turns. The most ridiculous one is that small hairpin-like banked turn shortly after the pit exit. What where the track designers thinking with that useless thing. Also they definitely copied the fast Eau Rouge part of Belgium following up that small hairpin up the hills. Other than that it is okay. Vietnam... well I like Sectors 1&2 but I absolutely hate the 3rd sector which resembles the first sector of Suzuka with those fast left/right turns. I kinda never get a proper rhythm for that kind of stuff (I am better remembering more distinctive corners than chained ones) and eventually in one turn I either oversteer or understeer and unlike in Suzuka where you go into the gravel/grass you end up in a wall in Vietnam. Also I never know wether I am supposed to lift/coast through those passages or go in fast and break late.

    We need a SLI patch NOW !

    SLI is dead. Even Nvidia itself is slowly fading it out. Most newer cards don't even support it anymore. Codemasters are better off investing in other areas.

    Dynamic Difficulty

    I kinda doubt the dynamic difficulty would really work. Lets say I use some generic AI level 50. On some tracks like in China or Sotchi or Belgium I eventually lap even the car in 2nd position. On other tracks like Monaco I have a hard time even outqualifying them if at all and during the race they are kinda close behind me all the time and I can only hope that my pit strategy is better than theirs and that I don't run into backmarkers slowing me down and wearing out my tires because if I did they would overtake me in the pits. And that is not just me being bad at Monaco but definitely the AI being stronger on there for some reason. Maybe better pathing or impossible steering at the hairpin and taking all the corners down in the harbor perfectly which a human player can't do or whatever. It also holds true for certain other tracks. On some they excel and at some they are garbage and they kinda don't reflect the difficulty setting. So if the AI isn't even equally good/bad at the tracks then how would a dynamic diffiulty setting work properly? It would probably only result in even more unbalanced races because if I bash them 4-5 races at the beginning of the season the difficulty would ramp up and then I head to Monaco and get my butt handed to me because it would be even more difficult than it already is because the AI being inherently better there already even without raising the difficulty further.

    Scaling of engine & tyre wear

    As far as I know you can't change the length of sessions during a weekend anymore. Only between weekends.
  13. Yeah, I agree. I have driven 46 25% races so far and all that ever happens is just mechanical DNFs. So the AI is just too perfect with their driving. Never make any mistakes while I have to use a flashback almost every race because I get sloppy when I get too comfortable.

    2nd Driver

    Yeah well, I just entered with AI 50 (was playing F1 2018 on AI 60-70 for most part) and beat the front teams in Australia in qualifying in my team, so I guess I could take it up a notch. But then the weird DSQ from Tire change bug hit me hard and ever since I have toned down the AI a bit so that I could fit a 2nd stop every race to overcome the bug. That bug really kills the experience because I don't want to be DSQ'd at the end of the race so I cheesed the AI but then they obviously fall back like +20sek and more so that I can pit 2nd time. That isn't a challenging experience tbh. Just one to overcome the bug. I pretty much beat them everywhere except for Monaco. There I have to admit I just suck + the controls suck too because I can't turn in as far as I'd need to in the hairpin losing precious time every lap, and also the AI kinda feels like it is from an entire different league there which I can't match. There I have to cheese it down to a level where I would lap them on every other track just to beat them in Qualify in Monaco. But yeah. If I would have to play it realistically I would probably have to crank up the difficulty so I barely outqualify the drivers of the team which is ranked above my team in the car power comparison.

    2nd Driver

    Yeah, I guess then it might make sense. But by then you probably have upgraded the facility which passively-permanently boosts your 2nd driver stats to level 3 each. And maybe even bought an actually competitive 2nd driver from the market. Somebody like Norris or Albon which don't cost yet that much but have very good stats for their acclaim/money. If they carry home at least 4-8 points every race you can beat Mercedes at the constructors championship without any problems in the 2nd or 3rd season already. I could have beaten them on my first season already if I had only one such upper-midfield guy since I am the one who wins the races anyway and the only problem is the constant 2nd and 3rd place finishes of Hamilton and Bottas (even if they retire 1-3 times early on in the season by a matter of chance) which you can never set off all by yourself. You will lose the first constructors championship by a small margin. In the most it is 20-40 points or something if you manage to win (almost) every race an the drivers championship. At least I have no problems with the drivers championship. But that is also because I am not playing on the most difficult settings (still in the progress of figuring something out that makes it interesting but not too difficult, like increasing difficulty by 5% every half a season)
